Experienced Contractors Delivering Exceptional Crawl Space Encapsulation Services
Is your crawl space cold and damp every time you go down there? Are there constant moisture problems?
While most Henrico homes are built with insulation for their crawl space, this thin barrier can wear down over time and leave your space vulnerable to the elements. Even worse, homes with vents can form gaps and cracks that bring in water.
Moisture problems can have serious consequences – a buildup of water or prolonged dampness may cause mold or mildew growth. Your home’s infrastructure and your family’s health can be negatively impacted from this exposure.
The best way to prevent moisture buildup and subsequent mold is through a full-scale crawl space encapsulation.
Dependable Home Services is a leader in home repair for Henrico and specializes in crawl space encapsulation. Our contractors will help you protect your home and prevent serious damage from compromising its structure.
How Encapsulation Helps Your Henrico Home
Proper insulation can shield your home from extreme weather and temperatures by acting as a barrier between the inside and outside world. In doing so, the insulation covers your home’s foundation and secures any weak spots.
Effective encapsulation can:
- Stop moisture damage
- Prevent mold and mildew growth
- Preserve your home’s foundation
- Reduce heating and cooling costs
- Lower risk of pest infestations
